Both science and art involve a lot of looking around with wide eyes to get visual information. Beautiful Evidence is about how seeing becomes showing and data and proof become explanations. The book shows how to show almost any kind of information clearly and effectively. It also suggests many new designs, such as sparklines. It gives analytical tools for judging the credibility of evidence presentations (which are seen from both sides: how to produce and how to consume presentations). There are chapters on telling when evidence has been tampered with and how to spot a PowerPoint pitch. Beautiful Evidence ends with two chapters that move away from the world of pixel and paper flatlands and into the real world of three-dimensional space and time.
